Complete Waste of Time
Depressing, angry, bulky story. There's no sense of wonder, or joy, that anyone longing for magic to be real would feel. I hated the main character.... now that I think about it, I hated most of the characters. To be fair, I did quit reading after 150 pages or so. It was too much like a piece of assigned reading, it was unenjoyable work.
